Shelter by Harlan Coben

ShelterShelter by Harlan Coben

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Harlan Coben mysteries and he has effectively made the transition into YA mysteries with Micky Bolitar, a sophomore, whose uncle, Myron Bolitar, is the famous detective in other Coben suspense novels. Mickey's dad has died in a car accident and it has sent his mom on a downward spiral into alcohol and drugs. While she is in rehab, Mickey is staying at his uncle's house, going to a new school, meeting a new girl he likes and befriending a goth and a geeky guy. Mickey is self assured, plays basketball, and misses his father terribly. When his new girlfriend disappears without a trace, Mickey and his friends try to locate her. There is lots of suspense' Bat Lady in an old house, a home invasion of Ashley's house; being followed and run-ins with the police. I will certainly be reading the next YA mystery by Coben!
